  1. Element & iBeam: Which unit in which guitar?

    I've got an Element on the way soon, and I'm trying to make up my mind as to which of two guitars to install it in. The other guitar will get an active iBeam with an added soundhole magnetic pickup....

    Sorry to butt in, but when you get the system working, I'd love to hear what it sounds like. I've been thinking about installing a T-Bridge on my Artcore AF-85 for a while now.

    China rips off LR Baggs

    I came across this yesterday. I saw a unit on eBay that looked suspiciously like an Anthem SL, and did a little more digging.

    Hi, is it possible to bypass the EQ curve on the RTS II preamp? Is it possible to bypass the preamp entirely?

    Thanks, Caleb. I'll try to find a dealer online. In the meantime, could you tell me what the MSRP is for the output harness?
  6. replacement output cable/endpin jack for iMix?

    Hi again,

    I'm getting ready to purchase my 3rd iBeam, and first iMix. Would it be possible to purchase a second output component for the iMix? That way, I could theoretically leave the iBeams...

    Thanks for the reply. Rather than adding the iBeam to the RT preamp's aux channel, could I disconnect the RT and run the iBeam through the main channel?

    Still hoping to get an answer. I found this in the RTS user guide:

  10. mix & match with iBeam passive, RTS II, and others

    I've really become a big fan of my iBeam, and am considering purchasing another. I was wondering what my options would be in pairing iBeams with other preamps. Two questions:

    RTS II on an archtop?

    I've got this strange desire to use my ES-175 copy for solo acoustic shows. Right now, I've got a generic piezo-loaded TOM bridge in there, but the sound I'm getting has a lot of room for...

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm going through the Ctrl-X as well as a Zoom A2, which I'm reasonably happy with.

    Phosphor bronze vs. 80/20, coated vs. uncoated, shouldn't make much difference?

    best-sounding strings for X-bridge

    Hi Caleb & Bryan,

    What type of strings do you recommend for the most natural-sounding acoustic sound out of the X-bridge? I won't be using the magnetic pickups, so I'm not restricted to standard...

    Any chance you're still feeling generous? I've tried two types of double-sided tape. One adheres well, and the other sounds good, but neither one does both.

    Hi, I was wondering whether the iBeam uses a 2.5mm or 3.5mm plug.

    X-Bridge/Ctrl-X without 3-way toggle switch?

    Hi again Bryan,

    Hopefully this is the correct place for my question. If possible, I'd like to remove the 3-way toggle switch from my X-Bridge/Ctrl-X setup, and just use the Ctrl-X pot as a blend...

    A white slide switch might be neat, too (on a white pickguard). It would take more pickguard surgery, but it would reduce the risk of inadvertently flipping the switch while strumming hard.

    X-Bridge and flatwounds?

    Hi folks... first post here.

    I was wondering whether anyone had tried using the X-Bridge (with a Ctrl-X) with flatwound strings. Would it sound any different than roundwounds?
